Chance Reunion

Apr 08, 2019

COL (R) Joe Jaworowski '63 and Marc Gunnels '77Thanks to the technology of Grad Link, Marc Gunnels '77 had the most enjoyable "chance reunion" with his plebe/yearling Chinese Professor last month. While he was with the Supt in Indianapolis for Founders Day, he did a random search of grads living in the area looking for familiar names. After tapping 15-20 "Tarbucket" icons, he stumbled on to the name of COL(R) Joe Jaworowski ‘63. He hadn’t spoken to Joe in 44 years and often wondered what became of him.

Joe was an extremely well-liked and respected officer who went out of his way to help his cadets understand the complexities of Mandarin Chinese. Marc was particularly in his debt for tutoring him during the many weeks he spent in the hospital plebe year recovering from a serious football injury.

When he called Joe, he seemed thrilled to hear from a former student and suggested they meet at a local pub. They had a terrific time getting reacquainted and recalling old memories. It also gave Marc the chance to thank Joe in person for making a difference in his life. They are already planning their next get together.

The Long Gray Line is definitely made stronger with Grad Link!
